Born on June 2, 1933 in Strasbourg.
Last lived at 21, rue Rode, Bordeaux.
Interned in the Lalande camp near Tours and then transferred to Drancy.
From there, she, her mother Frieda, and her sister Paulette, age 7, were deported on Sept. 11, 1942 on Convoy 31.
Their destination: Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Aside from these stark facts, all we know of Anny is what is on her I.D. card: that she was Jewish, had blonde hair, blue eyes, rosy complexion, and was of moderate height. And that she had very cute little-girl handwriting.
I'd give anything to know more about this sad-eyed angel, and the thousands upon thousands of children who died alongside her.
This photo is from "French Children of the Holocaust: A Memorial" by Serge Klarsfeld. It's a huge doorstop of a book containing whatever photos and information that remain of the 11,000 French-Jewish children who were murdered by Nazis like Klaus Barbie (who Klarsfeld helped put on trial). The number of beautiful, innocent faces in this book is overwhelming. The book cost me $85 but I didn't care - I needed to remember those faces.
